Are they really invisible?

What are these braces and how do they differ from traditional treatments? Traditional braces are an incredibly effective way of straightening teeth, they can be manipulated by your dentist as the shape of your teeth changes. These braces are fixed to the front of your teeth and would typically remain visible for the duration of your treatment. Incognito braces differ in one key area! They are invisible, or practically so, they are fixed not to the front of your teeth but to the back, think about where your tongue rests. The only way that people would know you’re wearing Weybridge Incognito braces is if you told them.

How do they work?

Our Weybridge Incognito treatments offer fantastic results coupled with excellent levels of care. All this alongside with the fact that they are practically invisible makes them an ideal choice for anyone who wants straighter teeth. They work using custom-made archwires, brackets and bonding trays that align your teeth over the course of your treatment.

Our team at Weybridge Orthodontics uses 3D imaging to build a complete picture of your teeth and mouth. This will allow our orthodontists to create braces that fit you specifically and predict your results with a very high level of accuracy. After all, who doesn’t want to know what they are getting before they buy it? These braces are comfortable and fixed so you don’t need to worry about removing them while eating or drinking and over time they become barely noticeable.

In order to keep ensuring you are getting the best treatment possible we will need to complete a thorough examination and follow up on your treatment regularly. This will allow you to obtain the best results over the course of your treatment. 

What results can you expect?

Each of us is unique and so are our mouth and teeth, so results can vary from person to person. We want you to know exactly what to expect when you choose a treatment plan with us here at Weybridge Orthodontics and our friendly team are here to talk. The best thing you can do if you still have questions about the best option for you is to book a consultation and let us put your mind at ease. Talk to the specialists to find out how you can get a straighter smile that you are truly proud of.

How do Invisalign in Weybridge compare to conventional metal braces?

Invisalign is often considered by many patients as an innovative alternative to traditional metal braces. They are essentially clear aligner dental trays which consist of a plastic transparent material, working by slowly encouraging the teeth to move in a positive, and therefore straighter position within the mouth. Invisalign has risen greatly in popularity within recent years, due to its aesthetically pleasing physical appearance, as well as the long lasting (and of course rapid) dental results.

The ways in which they differ…

Individuals who are looking at receiving any form of orthodontic work may be considering various options, and may therefore be interested in the differences between modern orthodontics. Both traditional metal braces and Invisalign in Weybridge strive for the same dental results, being a straighter and happier smile. However, they both work in different ways which will be explained below.

How they work

Traditional metal braces use a combination of metal brackets and wires to apply pressure on the misaligned teeth. They may be more suitable for more serious dental cases (such as severe overcrowding, overbites, and underbites).

The Invisalign in Weybridge treatment process

Invisalign produces effective dental results without the use of metal brackets and wires. The transparent plastic trays are replaced every several ways in order to slowly achieve the desired position of the teeth within the mouth.

How much does Invisalign in Weybridge cost?

This is a question we get asked frequently at our dental clinic, however the price may vary greatly depending on the dental surgery, in addition to the unique dental case (such as the severity). If you are interested in paying for your Invisalign treatment over the course of 18 or 24 months (interest free!) then you can use our online payment calculator to find the right monthly price and time period for you.

Can I pay for my clear aligners upfront?

Yes! Despite monthly payment plans working for many of our patients, many individuals may find it easier to pay for their Invisalign treatment upfront. This means they can enjoy the results of their treatment without having to worry about future payments.

Is Invisalign available under the national health service?

No! Unfortunately clear aligners are considered as ‘cosmetic dental care’ this is due to their invisible and therefore aesthetically pleasing physical appearance, (in comparison to traditional metal braces). Despite not being available under the national health service, our dental team always ensures our patients feel as comfortable as possible when paying for their chosen dental treatment, therefore finding a plan that works for them, and their financial position.

What to expect from the Invisalign in Weybridge treatment process

Many of our patients may have heard of ‘Invisalign’ famous in the field of modern dentistry, however they may be unsure of what to expect from the treatment process at our practice in Weybridge. Much like any dental treatment, we always commence Invisalign with an initial consultation, during this appointment we will assess your smile, and determine whether Invsialign is right for you, and your individual dental case.

Taking the next step

Once we have decided that Invisalign is right for you, we can take photos of your teeth, producing three dimensional images to illustrate the movements your smile will make during the Invisalign process. Our ClinCheck system can create a custom-made digital estimate of your future smile, this gives our patients something to look forward to nearing the end of their treatment.

How long will your treatment take?

This is a question we get asked frequently at our dental clinic, as many patients may be concerned as regards to how long they will have to wait for their projected smile. Using our modern ClinCheck system we can determine the exact number of trays our patients require, therefore reducing the number of dental appointments they need to attend during their treatment plan.

Our dental clinic understands that all of our patients’ financial situations are unique, which is why we offer them the chance to pay for their chosen treatment over an 18 or 24 month period.

Do you charge interest?

Aside from fewer dental abrasions, Incognito braces may only cause minimal or zero speech impairment, far less than that which can be caused by traditional metal ‘train tracks’.

How do they work?

Incognito braces are referred to as the ‘modern and invisible alternative to traditional metal braces’. Incognito braces at our clinic within Weybridge are designed using modern dental technology, and the best possible materials available. In terms of the way they work, Incognito braces are personalised for each of our individual cases, applying pressure from behind the teeth, to encourage the teeth to move in a positive direction.

The design process

Initially, our trained dentists will thoroughly assess each dental case, ensuring the design and measurements can be made perfectly for our patients. Our trained orthodontists use a three dimensional system which helps our patients visualise the end results, with pinpoint accuracy. Once the treatment begins, patients may embrace the fixed aspect of their braces, Incognito braces are never removed, which means patients can eat, drink, and clean their teeth as if they weren’t there!

How much do Incognito braces cost?

We always inform our patients that each dental case varies greatly depending on the complexity of their dental situation and the condition which needs to be addressed, however we can give a rough estimate for them. We also offer monthly payment plans with zero per cent interest

Are you interested in Invisalign in Weybridge?

Patients who may be leaning towards this particular form of discreet brace, may be suffering from overcrowding, crooked teeth, or may simply wish for an orthodontic refresh. Despite the initial beliefs of many of our new patients, many individuals who have received Invisalign in the past may have previously received braces at an earlier stage in their life, but they may have failed to maintain orthodontic results through the use of retainers.

What is Invisalign?

Invisalign consists of clear aligner trays, which are custom made for each individual. Many patients may believe that ‘Invisalign’ is the official treatment name of the transparent aligners themselves, however they are just one brand provider of the orthodontic treatment. At our clinic within Weybridge, we have experienced a recent upsurge in popularity of clear aligners, one of the reasons being due to their invisible appearance.

How do Invisalign produce effective results?

Invisalign uses a custom made dental impression, in order to create the plastic trays. Once our clinic has received our patient’s aligners, the treatment can begin! During the treatment itself, our patient should expect to replace the aligners every few weeks, slowly straightening the teeth, and therefore producing a happier smile!

How much does Invisalign cost?

Many patients may receive varying results when trying to distinguish the exact price of Invisalign, this is because the price depends heavily on the individual dental case. Although it is always tricky, we give our patients an estimate, however we never ask our patients to pay in full before beginning.

Monthly payment plans

We understand that private dental care costs can be overwhelming, this is why we strive to offer our patients ultimate financial flexibility. Located on our site, our patients can calculate the exact amount they wish to pay, and the preferred time period they wish to complete the payment within. Aside from our zero per cent interest finance plans, we always offer free initial consultations for our new patients considering treatment.

What are orthodontics in Weybridge?

Orthodontics is a field of dentistry that aims to realign, and consequently straighten the teeth within the mouth. Aside from the functional improvements, orthodontics can also lead to a healthier mouth overall. Many individuals may think of traditional metal braces when orthodontics come to mind, however within the modern field of dentistry there are many more subtle dental alternatives.

weybridge-orthodontics

How do traditional metal braces work?

Traditional metal braces are commonly referred to as ‘train tracks’ and might be considered as unsightly in comparison to the subtle orthodontics in Weybridge we provide. Traditional metal braces use metal brackets and wires in order to apply pressure on the teeth, to result in them reaching the desired position. Despite all braces aiming for the same results, they all do so in varying ways, their appearance could be considered as the largest difference.

The discreet alternatives we offer

Our clinic never compromises on the quality and quantity of our dentistry, this is why we offer various types of braces to suit each individual’s circumstances, Incognito, Invisalign, and Clarity, just to name a few! Invisalign could be argued as one of the more popular dental treatments we offer at our clinic, producing effective, and long-lasting dental results.

What is Invisalign?

Invisalign is the largest brand provider of clear aligners worldwide, the aligners are transparent plastic trays which are replaced every few weeks to slowly encourage the teeth to realign. The popularity of clear aligners is not only due to their invisible appearance, but also their effective orthodontic results.

The treatment process

Initially, we will take a digital impression of your teeth using a modern technology known as ‘ClinCheck’. After your impressions are created we can start the treatment process! Using the ClinCheck system, we can estimate the exact number of trays required, as well as the treatment time you may require.

How does Invisalign in Weybridge compare to traditional metal braces?

Invisalign is the largest and the most popular brand provider of clear aligners worldwide, and the brand we happen to use at our clinic in Weybridge. Invisalign are essentially clear aligner trays which are made of transparent plastic, they aim to straighten moderate overcrowding as well as other alignment issues within the mouth. Clear aligners have risen greatly in popularity within recent years, due to their subtle appearance, and effective long-lasting dental results. In terms of comparison, both forms of orthodontics strive for the same results, however they both do so in varying ways.

invisalign-braces-weybridge

Traditional metal braces

Traditional metal braces use metal wires and brackets, in order to apply pressure on the teeth. Metal braces are often referred to as ‘train tracks’ and may be more suitable for patients who are suffering from severe overbites or underbites. Despite both forms aiming to straighten the teeth, their appearance differs greatly. Traditional metal braces could be considered as ‘unsightly’ by some, which is why we aim to promote variety.

A discreet alternative

Invisalign in Weybridge is able to produce the same effective dental results as traditional metal braces, without the hindrance of obvious dental work. Aside from their invisible aesthetic appearance, clear aligners are extremely easy to care for. Clear aligners can be removed to clean, and eat, meaning they are a perfect fit for patients with a busy lifestyle.

How do clear aligners work?

Despite their rising popularity, many of our patients may be unsure of how Invisalign actually works! The clear aligner trays are replaced every couple of weeks, in order to slowly encourage the teeth to move into a straighter position.

Our clinic is lucky enough to embrace modern forms of dental technology, one example of which is known as ‘ClinCheck’. ClinCheck is a modern three dimensional scanning system which creates impressions of the teeth, as well as a 3D estimation of a patient’s desired dental results.

Why we use ClinCheck

ClinCheck is an excellent way to estimate the exact number of trays required, which can cut down the amount of dental visits required during the treatment process. Reducing the number of dental visits not only allows the treatment to run smoothly, but can also cut financial costs for our patients.

How long does Invisalign in Weybridge take to produce results?

As a simple answer, it depends on the individual. Treatment time can vary massively depending on the severity of an individual’s case, however as a general rule Invisalign can take from around twelve to eighteen months to produce results. In more severe cases, clear aligners may be worn for up to thirty months, although this is not common practice.

How much does Invisalign cost?

It is always hard to apply a general rule, as all dental cases may differ greatly. Our practice will endeavour to give a good estimate of costs involved on dental examination, as the period of treatment can vary according to the complexity of a patient’s dental condition.,

Spread the cost

Many patients receiving private dental care may be put off by the idea of a large upfront dental bill, which is why we strive to ease their concerns. Our dental clinic not only offers 0% interest finance payment plans spread over twelve months, but we also give our patients the chance to pay off their treatment over several years.

Have you considered using Incognito braces in Weybridge?

With braces, you can achieve your lifelong dream of having straight teeth. However, even though archetypal braces have evolved, people are hesitant about the possibility of wearing a straightening aid.

incognito braces weybridge

While adult braces are socially acceptable, many do not like the idea of having metal glued to their front teeth for the world to see.

If you are looking for an alternative device, have you considered Incognito in Weybridge? Contact us today at Weybridge Orthodontics, to learn more.

What is Incognito in Weybridge?

Incognito braces are aptly named because the device is positioned behind your teeth and out of plain sight.

They are made in a similar way to ordinary braces, using metal brackets and wire; only the placement is different.

Why choose Incognito in Weybridge?

Incognito or lingual (meaning toward the tongue) braces are custom-fabricated to fit the shape of your teeth exactly.

We also use 3D technology that helps to accurately map out your treatment and provide you with results that will not leave you feeling disappointed.

Will I have to change my lifestyle with Incognito in Weybridge?

Braces can change the way your teeth look monumentally, but when you wear them, you may get frustrated by the sacrifices that you have to make.

With lingual braces, these will not be issues that you face, and for the most part, you can carry on with your life as usual. At the same time, you will not have to worry about discolouration or white spots when your braces come off.

However, one thing to make a note of is that cleaning grit out of the back of your teeth can get tricky, so be sure to invest in some high-quality floss.

Is there anything else about lingual braces that I should know about?

Lingual braces do come with a set of limitations, especially if you have a severe overbite. A severe malocclusion will exert a lot of pressure on the device, causing it to detach easily. In these instances, our orthodontist will direct you toward a more suitable method.

You may also struggle to speak properly initially and develop a temporary lisp. However, once your teeth adjust to the foreign device in your mouth, it should go away over time.

As with conventional braces, there are types of food that you cannot eat because of how they might react with your device. For example, you should stay away from hard or crunchy food. If you do not want to limit your diet, Invisalign is a viable alternative.

Last but not least, despite being made to fit your mouth, the device has been reported by many as uncomfortable. While you may get used to the device, some people experience low-level discomfort throughout the experiences of wearing braces due to their tongue being in constant contact with metal.

Exploring the alternatives

If an Incognito device is not for you, Invisalign is another commonly used orthodontic aid that renders positive results and lots of happy smiles.

As with Incognito braces, the device, made from clear plastic, is not detectable to the untrained eye.
